Making movies with your mobile

I've long given up on keeping my social media accounts strictly separate with respect to private and professional use. Instead, I use rough guidelines on which of several blogs I use for what kind of message. Admittedly, a lot of the time I can't seem to make up my mind nor find the time for posting, so every one of my blogs suffers a little bit of neglect. Not keeping it all strictly separate can have good side effects though: When checking events on facebook during my lunch break I found a little video by my friend and (ex) colleague Patsy, who shared her just acquired skills via a short video created during a one day workshop at the Media Trust called 'Movies with Mobiles'. Because I like this little video and find it quite encouraging, I asked her to put it on YouTube (wondering if this is better for sharing than Facebook ...). And here it is:

Thank you, Patsy.


  1. I understand that posting a video directly to Facebook gives better resolution that linking from Facebook to YouTube - which is a different issue from the question you pose.
    (By the way the 5-shot rule demo-ed in the video is one part of a '1-3-5-7 rule' that is useful for making videos).

  2. Thanks, Patsy. Not sure about the difference in video quality (where did you get this info from?). Also, not aware of the 1-3-5-7 rule for video making. Where can I find more info? My post isn't in first place about video making, but the useful discoveries you can make via your social networks. I'm not very explicit about that though, and mixing the agendas a little bit, sorry.
